You Never Give Me Your Money: The Battle for the Soul of the "Beatles"

Author(s): Peter Doggett


When Paul McCartney told the world in 1970 that he had no plans to work with the Beatles again, it was widely viewed as a cultural tragedy by the media and public alike. But one of the most fascinating phases of the Beatles' story was just about to begin. Now, for the first time, "You Never Give Me Your Money" tells the dramatic story of the Fab Four post 1969. It charts the almost Shakespearean rivalry of the Lennon and McCartney families, the conflict in George Harrison's life between spirituality and fame, and Richard Starkey's efforts to escape the alcoholism that threatened to kill him. It also chronicles the transformation of their multi-media company, Apple Corps, from a bastion of 1960s counter-culture into a corporate behemoth. The best of rock'n'roll writers, Peter Doggett gives us a compelling human drama, spanning from tragedy to triumphant reunion, and court battles to chart success, tracing the untold story of a group and a legacy that will never be forgotten.
